The Sony PSP2 currently labeled the NGP is the high-end successor to the portable Sony PSP gaming console. The PSP2 is slated to be increasingly more powerful than the original PSP with a unique social networking integration known as LiveArena (no more XrossMediaBar), and Android market support.
The Sony NGP will feature an ARM Cortex -A9 quad core CPU combined with an SGX543MP4+ GPU, which will obviously create a much larger and heavier device than the original. The NGP includes additional internal components and features such as a front and rear camera, integrated stereo speakers, and integrated microphone, a rear multi-touch pad (capacitive), and a Six-axis motion sensing system (accelerometer). Full location services support will also be included and supported through use of an integrated GPS with full Wi-Fi location service support as well. The NGP will also include 3G functionality and support to provide constant access to networking features even on the go.
The NGP will not use traditional UMDs (Universal Media Discs) like the original PSP but will instead use an unidentified "new media", which will most likely be similar to memory cards.
Sony has announced the price tag will be higher than expected and the device will release sometime towards the end of 2011, no specifics were given as of this writing.
